The deadly shooting at a college campus in Oregon Friday has put student Chris Mintz in the hospital with life-altering injuries.
But the Army vet–who was shot seven times while trying to save his classmates–is getting a boost from well-wishers that reminds us that the human race isn’t completely heartless.
The fundraising effort was set up by Mintz’s cousin with a goal of $10,000. Contributions from some 19,000 people pushed the figure well over that goal.
Being the incredible human being he is, Mintz chose to make his first Facebook post since the incident about the others affected by the shooting, writing:
“Hope the others injured and their families are doing well, goodnight for me.”
